Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Is the writer or the editor more at fault here? “Their trademark gentle acoustic offering that acted more as a gentle outline…” You decide.

“For folk singers, turning up the amp can be the difference between happiness and heartbreak. Angus and Julia Stone have taken quite a chance with their new album, adopting a heavier, bigger band sound. Their trademark gentle acoustic offering that acted more as a gentle outline to their respective voices has been electrified. The quiet moment that once sat next to Angus’ and sister Julia’s breaths is now filled with a battle between drums, banjos, blues guitars and forceful piano notes” – Eleven Magazine on Angus and Julia Stone

MORAL: Many cooks make light broth.

    Oh that is bad. Really bad.

    ps. Is Eleven Magazine street press or just an online mag?

    Yeah, I agree. I’ve decided to stop reprinting from Eleven Magazine, though. I’ve investigated a little closer and it’s really not a fair target. It isn’t “street press” by the usual definition of the phrase – it certainly doesn’t have access to the same resources as most print street press titles have in Australia.

    Instead, I’m turning my attention wider abroad… and closer to home. Watch this space!

    (And if anyone wants to collect together an assortment of mine and send them through to be published here, I would suggest that a good starting point would be the excruciatingly opportunistic and ill-informed reviews I did for amazon at the turn of the 00s, still available online.)
